Zagreb, February 22 and 23. - Under the leadership of the Croatian Olympic Committee's Coordinator for EU funds and programs Alma Papić, an international meeting of partners in the project SUCCESS (Strengthening good governance in the European sports community by providing women with necessary competencies in order to support gender balance and equality in decisionmaking and sports structures) was held in Zagreb on February 22 and 23.
This meeting should contribute to achieving the objectives of the European Commission in the field of good management in sports. The project SUCCESS has a dual task – on one hand to provide education and training the competence of women for more demanding positions in sports and on the other to promote gender equality and to raise awareness on the importance of equal share of men and women in leading positions in sports. In this project, which will last until 2017 and which is funded by the program Erasmus+ sports, the partners of the Croatian Olympic Committee - holder of the mentioned project - are the National Olympic Committees of France, Italy, Lithuania and Slovakia.
